Making an evening snack for my son after school, or on a busy morning to whip up something really easy is always on my hunt. Pancakes is one option that I go for whenever I am confused as to what to make for a busy morning or after school snack. My kids just love it very much and so I have no troubles in getting them have these.
Though we used to make the kind of sweet pancakes that was very much followed in the traditional way, when we happened to get a pack of Pancake mix from my cousins abroad, the hunt for that recipe began, from then on and Pancakes became very common at home. Since it was always the usual basic pancakes I used to make most of the time, I though I would bring in something different this time. On searching my fridge, I happen to find the Hot Chocolate drinking powder, which I use often to make the Choco biscuit truffles, I thought I would do something with this and landed up in this version of pancakes.
This time I had my niece, Michelle also to join the list of hungry mouths and it was a joy to see how all three of them enjoyed their lovely pancakes and was in ask for more.
